Line Material Rank Two Sampler

Access a component of a RankTwoTensor

Description

The postprocessor LineMaterialRankTwoSampler is used to output specific components of Rank-2 tensors along a user-defined line in the mesh. The postprocessor uses indices, similar to the AuxKernel RankTwoAux, to determine the component of the Rank-2 tensor to output along a line.

The user must supply the start and end points of the line along which the Rank-2 tensor component should be tracked. Often this class is used to track stress or strain along an exterior or interior edge of the mesh.

    Description:The beginning of the line

  • index_jThe index j of ij for the tensor to output (0, 1, 2)

    C++ Type:unsigned int

    Options:

    Description:The index j of ij for the tensor to output (0, 1, 2)

  • index_iThe index i of ij for the tensor to output (0, 1, 2)

    C++ Type:unsigned int

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:Name of the material property to be output along a line

Required Parameters

  • execute_onTIMESTEP_ENDThe list of flag(s) indicating when this object should be executed, the available options include NONE, INITIAL, LINEAR, NONLINEAR, TIMESTEP_END, TIMESTEP_BEGIN, FINAL, CUSTOM.

    Default:TIMESTEP_END

    C++ Type:ExecFlagEnum

    Options:NONE INITIAL LINEAR NONLINEAR TIMESTEP_END TIMESTEP_BEGIN FINAL CUSTOM

    Description:The list of flag(s) indicating when this object should be executed, the available options include NONE, INITIAL, LINEAR, NONLINEAR, TIMESTEP_END, TIMESTEP_BEGIN, FINAL, CUSTOM.

  • blockThe list of block ids (SubdomainID) that this object will be applied

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:The list of block ids (SubdomainID) that this object will be applied

  • _is_broadcastTrue

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

  • contains_complete_historyFalseSet this flag to indicate that the values in all vectors declared by this VPP represent a time history (e.g. with each invocation, new values are added and old values are never removed). This changes the output so that only a single file is output and updated with each invocation

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Set this flag to indicate that the values in all vectors declared by this VPP represent a time history (e.g. with each invocation, new values are added and old values are never removed). This changes the output so that only a single file is output and updated with each invocation

Optional Parameters

  • enableTrueSet the enabled status of the MooseObject.

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Set the enabled status of the MooseObject.

  • use_displaced_meshFalseWhether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Whether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

  • outputsVector of output names were you would like to restrict the output of variables(s) associated with this object

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:Vector of output names were you would like to restrict the output of variables(s) associated with this object

  • control_tagsAdds user-defined labels for accessing object parameters via control logic.

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:Adds user-defined labels for accessing object parameters via control logic.

  • allow_duplicate_execution_on_initialFalseIn the case where this UserObject is depended upon by an initial condition, allow it to be executed twice during the initial setup (once before the IC and again after mesh adaptivity (if applicable).

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:In the case where this UserObject is depended upon by an initial condition, allow it to be executed twice during the initial setup (once before the IC and again after mesh adaptivity (if applicable).

  • force_preauxFalseForces the GeneralUserObject to be executed in PREAUX

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Forces the GeneralUserObject to be executed in PREAUX
